What is stevia?

There is "stevia" in my new tea that I've begun to drink daily. I've heard of it and thought is was "artificial" but if so, it wouldn't be in my "all natural herbal tea". Is this right?

It's a plant...super sweet and maybe a little bitter too.
If you look around online you can read about stevia. It has to be sold as a supplement instead of a sweetener because the laws about sweeteners in the US...interesting story about food politics.

it is a plant and an ingredient in many herbal teas to help sweeten them.

I used to use stevia. Bought it at my health food store. It is ok but so strong I couldn't use much and the little I used left a bitter taste. Some brands are better than others.
I don't know I like splenda and I don't use that much so it is worth it to me.
